Fifteen years ago today, The Engineer and I went on our first date.

Look at us in our engagement photo -- babies, wearing matching khakis.

A couple of years ago, I was reading a charming British book named You Had Me At Hello and one of the quotes resonated with me:

“I knew I did from that first moment we met. It was...not love at first sight exactly, but - familiarity. Like: oh, hello, it's you. It's going to be you. Game over."

Because for the 5475 days since March 10, 2001, it has been him, every day. 


  1. That quote is beautiful and definitely how I felt when I met my husband as well. I love the khaki pants picture :)

    1. It really is a good book -- I highly recommend it and all of Mhairi McFarlane's work. And she has a new book coming out next month that I am excited about!
